What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is another wonderful injectable wrinkle relaxer that we offer at Optima Medical Spa in Los Angeles, CA. Like BOTOX, Xeomin relaxes the treated facial muscles, but it does it with only one ingredient — botulinum toxin A. If you have lines or wrinkles on your forehead, Crow's feet, or around your eyes, Xeomin may be an option for you. With FDA-approved Xeomin injections, your skin can appear smoother and softer for 3 – 4 months. We offer a number of aesthetic treatments to complement your wrinkle relaxing treatments. Arrange for a consult with our board-certified physician, Dr. Abraham (Avi) Ishaaya, to explore more benefits from your Xeomin injections.

Who is a Candidate?
Xeomin can help if you want to diminish the look of wrinkles on your face, like frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, Crow's feet in the outer corners of the eyes, and smile and laugh lines. Xeomin injections are best if you are in good general health, not pregnant, and have never had an allergic reaction to other botulinum products, like BOTOX. Speak with Dr. Ishaaya during your consultation about your current medications, cosmetic goals, and medical history so he can create your Xeomin treatment plan.
Xeomin injections usually take less than 30 minutes beginning to end and can be performed in our procedure room at the conclusion of your consultation. The areas of the face receiving treatment will be cleaned before Xeomin is gently injected with a fine gauge needle. The injections are quick, and most patients experience mild or no discomfort. A cold compress and pressure will be applied to the injection area to reduce minor bleeding prior to you leaving.
What to Expect
You can leave our office after receiving your Xeomin treatment to return to your normal activities; however, exercise and other strenuous activities should be skipped for the rest of the day. We may recommend that you sleep with your head elevated and apply cold compresses as needed to expedite healing and results. Following a Xeomin injection, you may have some swelling, bruising, or redness at the treatment sites, but this should heal on its own and can be easily covered up with makeup. Many individuals notice visible improvements 3 – 4 days after their Xeomin injection that should last about three months. Repeat injections at Optima Medical Spa can be arranged to sustain your results.
Should I get Xeomin or BOTOX?
Both BOTOX and Xeomin are injectable wrinkle relaxers activated by botulinum toxin A. Our experienced injectors at Optima Medical Spa understand the subtle differences between Xeomin and other wrinkle relaxers. We will help you make the right decision between our injectable wrinkle relaxers.
Are Xeomin injections safe for me?
Xeomin is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a cosmetic treatment, which can be safely used on most patients. During your consultation, we will ask several questions to rule out risks for a reaction.
Xeomin injections last how long?
Improvements from a Xeomin treatment can last up to three months. Every person will metabolize the injection at a different rate, which will determine how long it lasts. During your consultation, our team will talk about when you should visit again for retreatment.
